Posted on: March 19, 2009 2:27 am

 Best Game: Arizona St. vs. Temple

Cinderella: Western Kentucky

(1) North Carolina vs. (16) Radford

North Carolina- 78

Radford- 61

Sorry Radford, its not happening.

(8) LSU vs. (9) Butler

LSU- 66

Butler- 67

Pretty much a coinflip. It all depends on how LSU decides to play tomorrow.

(5) Illinois vs. (12) Western Kentucky

Illinois- 58

WKU- 67

Illinois is devastated by injury, and WKU will advance as a 12 for the second straight year.

(4) Gonzaga vs. (13) Akron

Gonzaga- 78

Akron- 56

Gonzaga is just too good. Won't be close, but atleast the kids from Akron get to experience the tourney.

(6) Arizona St. vs (11) Temple

ASU- 75

Temple- 74

Chirstmas will light it up for 30 plus, but ASU hits a last second shot to sneak into the 2nd round. Will be a fantastic game.

(3) Syracuse vs. (14) Stephen F. Austin

Syracuse- 99

Stephen F. Austin- 55

What fatigue? Syracuse rolls. It will get ugly. Nuff said.

(7) Clemson vs. (10) Michigan

Clemson- 81

Michigan- 77

Clemson is so damn irritating. They can be a final four team one day, and then play like fourth place in the SWAC. I think both teams will bring their best, but Clemson will pull it out.

(2) Oklahoma vs. (15) Morgan State

Oklahoma- 78

Morgan St.- 70

Morgan St. will fight and fight until the end, but Griffin will carry the Sooners.
